Meander through the Maui Ocean Center for a close-up view of Hawaii’s spectacular marine life with a special emphasis on humpback whales. To better understand the diversity of species in the Hawaiian Islands, you might browse exhibits featuring America’s largest live coral display, toxic pufferfish and green sea turtles – known locally as honu. More wonders will await you at the Open Ocean display, which features a clear acrylic tunnel that allows you to look up at a multitude of sharks, stingrays and colorful fish. Many of the species, such as the bandit angelfish and freckled snake eel, are endemic to Hawaii, so observing them is even more special. Still, the Humpbacks of Hawaii exhibit in the 3D Sphere is the highlight, as it presents the complex world of humpback whales through an immersive, cutting-edge audio-video experience. It is like being transported to the depths of the ocean and encountering these behemoths face-to-face.
